Solar Film supplied and installed by East Coast Insulations

Solar films are thin plastic or polymer layers applied to your existing windows to help control light or heat. Window films provide the best return-on-investment in existing buildings in warm climates, especially high-rise buildings, or homes with single-paned glass.

It has been proven that the higher quality films block up to 79% of the solar heat, reduce glare up to 83%, block 99% of UV rays and reduce heat loss in winter by up to 30% (low E films).

Solar window film, also known as solar control window film, is polyester films that can absorb and reradiate long-wave infrared heat, improving heat retention in the winter and lowering energy costs. Others reflect heat to the outside, minimizing summer heat — reducing central air conditioning bills and prolonging the life of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning units. The same films can reduce glare and block up to 99 percent of harmful UV radiation from entering a home or office, can save money, improve indoor comfort, and protect your furniture from sun damage

The newest solar films have the capacity to be clear instead of tinted and can block out as much as 55 percent of summer heat while retaining heat in winter.

Some films may not provide the advertised benefits or may begin to peel after a few years — though a quality film, professionally installed, may last 12 to 22 years. 

Ensure that the materials use dare from a reputable manufacturer and distributor, have it installed professionally and have the comfort that the installation will last.
